PIRAMK and TAMK: Successfull International Week


Pirkanmaa University of Applied Sciences (PIRAMK) and TAMK UAS, two universities merging at the beginning of 2010, took a new step in their cooperation at the end of April. They arranged a joint International Week for the non-teaching staff of their partner universities. The week carried the theme "My work in a multicultural working environment".

Part of the programme was the same for all the guests, and part of it was tailor-made for different groups of interest.

During the week there was also be an introduction to Finnish culture and society, as well as various free-time activities, such as Nordic walking, Finnish sauna and ice swimming.

The week was very successful, attracting 25 participants from 20 universities and 14 countries.
